Welding Cable Guides

I was thinking about brazing a cable guide onto my old frame (and if it goes well, then i would put one onto my new frame) right by the headtube, so that i wouldnt have to use a zip tie, or shoelace(like i am now) to hold my cable in place...


I think that most cable guides are brazed on, and i can get the little ring thing off of an old bent fork i have that the cable will fit through, so what do you all think?

Has anyone done this before?

Brazing is the way to go. But it would be far cheaper (and less of a pain in the ass) to get one of those glue-on plastic roadie ones.

Yeah, but when i have gone into the local bike shops, and tell them what i want, they told me they didnt know what they were...

I told them i wanted plasic stick on cable guides...

Plus brazing on a cable guide would make it last longer...
